New TYPAR Butyl Flashing Added to TYPAR Weather Protection System

(OLD HICKORY, Tenn.) — The new TYPAR® Butyl Flashing is a sturdy, yet flexible, flashing that features a proprietary butyl copolymer formula that provides maximum adhesion across a wide range of temperatures, making the product ideal for nearly any jobsite flashing application. 

“TYPAR Butyl Flashing was truly designed with the installer in mind with several user-friendly features that make installation quick and easy,” said Jorge Martinez, senior director of product marketing, TYPAR brand. “The combination of the products’ enhanced adhesion with its peel-and-stick properties makes TYPAR Flashing Butyl a perfect flashing option for year around construction schedules.” 

Designed for use on straight jambs and heads of windows and doors, TYPAR® Butyl Flashing ensures vulnerable seams and edges of the building envelope are sealed for seamless protection against moisture and air infiltration. And unlike rubberized asphalt-based flashings, TYPAR Flashing Butyl is compatible with caulks and sealants commonly used in window installation. The product also contains no VOCs, leading to healthier interior environments.     

When used as a part of the TYPAR Weather Protection System, Flashing Butyl is covered by the TYPAR industry-leading lifetime-limited warranty that includes both materials and labor.   

The complete TYPAR Weather Protection System, which consists of TYPAR weather-resistant barriers, flashings and construction tape, is engineered to assure the greatest protection against the elements.  The system provides the perfect balance of water/air holdout and moisture vapor transmission, while improving the overall energy efficiency of the home.
